Let’s jump into the excerpt from the second chapter in his book:


Not so long ago, there was a herd of caterpillars that lived in the Mystee forest, in a comfy little glen that had all the food, water and shelter they needed to be happy. Each morning it took them an hour to put their shoes on and each evening, an hour to remove them. Every caterpillar wore the same markings on their backs, which they were born with. They were like very colorful sweaters and if a bird or small animal looked at the markings, it read something like “Eat me.” However, the caterpillars did not realize this. Their existence was, for the most part, very pleasant.

There were two young caterpillars named Kenny and Kyle who were best friends. They were also the fastest runners and had special running shoes that were custom made from the finest grass clippings. Everywhere they went they ran as rapidly as possible and were always first in line for bingo, shuffleboard, and when the wading pool was opened. They especially liked running circles around the slugs, laughing and calling them names like “asstropod” (instead of gastropod) and “slime-balls.”

One afternoon as they were resting in the shade of a little dogwood tree, a turtle whizzed by at lightning speed (comparatively) and left them in the dust. Our two caterpillars were impressed.

“Wow!” Kenny cried. “Did you see that?”

“Barely,” Kyle replied. “If it comes back, let’s jump on and go for a ride.” So they climbed up a low hanging branch, hung on by their fingertips, and waited. After what seemed like hours but was only five minutes, the turtle returned from where it had been.

To find out what happens to Kyle and Kenny, you’ll need to go to: “Life Seemed Good, But…” on Smashwords or on Amazon!
